when the folks at Time picked their selection of unorthodox images (link – worth a view actually) i did not expect to find a poignant vignette that so completely summarized the real pity of what we are doing to our own habitat under so many sweet and vicious names. this is from #37 in the series.
September 19, 2011. Roses bloom on a field in Bad Nauheim, Germany. Days later, the rose blooms were mowed down and mechanically defoliated to sell the petals to German garden centers.
as the #OWS buddies keep saying: Shit is Fucked Up and Bullshit.
I almost wish I hadn’t looked.
it’s still so damn depressing :-\
